Give The Falklands Back

#2
Im getting fed up of the treasonous bollocks spewing from some sections of the media.

The guilt & decline merchants are out in force.

Does he really think the yanks are about to annexe ascension and diego garcia?

He writes some quite good articles normally. Not this time
No he doesn't, he writes a lot of crap - this is just a rehash of his Graunaid article a few days ago.

Almost everything he writes is simply to provoke debate, any reader of Private Eye will know that they pull him up on a regular basis for being 99% wrong with his pieces.

I know that but he seems to have gone mad since then, but I do love the fact that it was him that outed all the gay Mps and he hates Blair , but he is IMHO very left wing in some of his opinions, as in this case

Yes but he's written something a rightwinger doesn't like so he's a pinko commie leftwing poof, you know that!

He may have a point about Diego Garcia though, if the US DoD are using it essentially for free, and we have precious little interest in the place why not get some benefit, whether by means of lease or selling them the place

When the Argentinians installed a Governer the British Ambassador to the then United Provences,( Argentina) was instructed to forward the British claim to the Islands, which he did in 1829, this was promised special attention, but no settement was forthcoming, so a Gunboat was sent only to find that the Spanish had taken over,

Its an idealistic yet naive and ill-thought through article. Points of note include the US use of British territories such as Diego Garcia and Ascension Island, but the author fails to grasp the significance of the FI to the British people, especially to the families of those who died there.

Thank God the author is no longer involved in politics.

He was named after a gay Benadictine monk who drew maps and copied other peoples writings, so well named there then

Parris needs a punch in his smug gob.

What a stainlord, aye and we'll give Gib back as well while we're at it.

I'm surprised he didn't make mention of the potential oil anywhere in the article.
 
#16
The problem I have with the idea is that it totally disregards what the Beniies want. Personally I'd be happy if they were 100% independent, then they can pay HM Armed Forces Ltd for keeping them so from all the oil that will be in their national waters! Prince Edward could be their king, his doing nothing useful for the rest of his life after all.

This is being floated about in the media a lot.

We have a weak government and a weak opposition.

Does anyone else reckon we will be betraying the Falklands and handing them over to Argentina within the next few years?

No Tory Government will do it while Maggie's still alive. I think HM might cut her hand off before signing that piece of legislation too!

I doubt that, but it could end up happening to a point. I would not put it past the present govt to get involved in some kind of 'negotiated solution' whereby they end up not really belonging to either nation but each having a stake.
The issue with that (other than the betrayal) is that we will have started to concede, and once you have done that you have effectively admitted that your claim is not entirely rightful.

The only solution is that 'it is not up for discussion and if you attempt to invade you will find cruise missiles landing in BA, if you attempt to blockade you will be sending your sailors to the bottom of the sea'.
Only someone with balls can say that, so dont rest your hopes on gordon brown.

The spics lost any negotiating rights, (not that they ever had them in the first place), the day they landed on the FI mob handed.

You can't go asking to play with the the little kids ball and when he says no, steal it then go crying to mummy when the little kid gets his big brother to kick your arse and make you give it back.
